everyone is on fire for Rodrygo

Like Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior, Real Madrid can count at the start of the season on the fine performances of Rodrygo Goes, scorer on Sunday against Real Mallorca (4-1, 5th day of La Liga).

The unavailability of Karim Benzema did not prevent the real Madrid to chain. On Sunday, the club from the Spanish capital recorded a fifth consecutive victory in La Liga at the expense of Real Mallorca (4-1, 5th day of La Liga). This success, the White House of Carlo Ancelotti owes in particular to Rodrygo Goes. Aligned on the front of the attack alongside Vinicius Junior and Eden Hazard, tenured in the lead in the absence of the French striker, the 21-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder delivered an assist and scored his second goal in three games of championship.

“Rodrygo is comfortable in any position”

At a press conference, the Italian coach praised the performance of the former member of Santos FC, on whom the former Paris Saint-Germain coach can rely in the future for his versatility. “We struggled in the first half, not because Hazard was the nine. For the future, I have the same idea, it doesn’t change anything. Rodrygo is comfortable in any position and it’s harder to score from the wing, Vinicius has understood that too. Eden can play on the right, Rodrygo too… We will see as the matches progress.”

Real Madrid’s director of institutional relations, Emilio Butragueño is full of praise for the international Auriverde, enlisted in the summer of 2019 for the sum of 45 million euros and under contract until June 2025. “We have a lot of players and they are all very good. Today Rodrygo played a wonderful match. His goal was extraordinary, like all the ones we saw today. With his quality, he will help us a lot.” With the merengue jersey, Rodrygo Goes played 113 games in all competitions, for 20 goals.
